About this event

Come with us as we return to Papplewick Pumping Station to their underground brick reservoir!  The reservoir (which has now dried up) is a vast underground space full of old brickwork arches and pillars and with the use of our own lighting and smoke machines this is a fantastic and unique location to do atmospheric model photography! So join us for a day of variety with a host of themed models that will include themed fashion and eye catching characters from history & the future! The reservoir is very spacious so we will have the different models positioned in different locations around the site, each with different lighting so that there will be a unique scene around every corner! We will be providing smoke from our smoke machines to create atmosphere and a wide variety of lighting set ups. This promises to be an event not to miss in a unique location and spaces are limited so we advise booking soon to avoid disappointment! 

Please wear sturdy shoes and a warm jumper or coat as it stays at about 11 degrees underground, the ground can also be a bit dirty in places so we recommend bringing a bag or mat to rest your camera bag on. There are about 15 steep steps leading down into the reservoir with a handrail. 

This session is open to 25 photographers only. 

This session will run from 10:00-13:00.
